ESET Smart Security Premium v16.2.11.0 Blocking Apple TV

Recommended Posts

As per the title.  This is 100% repeatable: if I disable the Firewall I can stream content from my PC via Apple TV to my TV.  As soon as I enable the Firewall is stops.  This happened to me years ago and I was able to resolve it but nothing I find now relates top the current menu structure.  Any advice gratefully received.


It's back to using Interactive Mode until I get a resolution.

Since the router's firewall must be modified for Apple TV, I assume the same inbound Eset firewall rules need to be created;


The Apple TV requires some ports to be open to be able to sync and activate with the Apple Servers. If the ports are not configured properly, you might receive errors.

Apple’s Home Sharing uses TCP port 3689 and UDP port 5353 to communicate with shared iTunes libraries.  Additionally port 123 (TCP/UDP) has to be open to set the time automatically.

I've had a similar issue with ESET Smart Security Premium, but instead of Apple TV, it was affecting my streaming of "LokLok movies." Disabling the Firewall allowed me to stream content to my TV, but as soon as I re-enabled it, the problem returned. I encountered this problem years ago, and the solutions back then don't seem to apply to the current menu structure. Any guidance on resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated. I'll be sticking with Interactive Mode until I find a solution...
